The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has reacted to the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the Supreme Court.
Naija News reported that the Supreme Court had on Wednesday dismissed the case instituted by Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the 2019 election victory of President Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The apex court ruled against the PDP and its candidate and in favour of the APC and its candidate. It noted that the suit instituted by Atiku and the PDP lacked merit.
The seven-man panel of the court, headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Mohammed in a unanimous judgement, affirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari was validly elected as Nigeria’s President in the February 23 presidential election.
The Supreme Court panel, however, said it will give reasons for its decision at a later date.
Reacting in a statement by his media office and signed by Ike Abunyi, Secondus hailed Nigerians for their commitment and support to the party and to democracy.
He said that the final judgement belongs to God.
According to the PDP Chairman, the commitment of Nigerians to democracy and its tenets despite inhibiting factors is worthy of emulation and highly commendable.
“We thank you for your support for the PDP, for your commitment to democracy. Nigerians know that you voted PDP, even APC knows that you rejected them on February 23, 2019, the international community knows you voted for PDP, if Supreme Court of seven justices says otherwise, leave it to God the ultimate Judge,” he said.
